Chossing OpenVPN client for AirVPN on Android

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just switched from another VPN provider to AirVPN. I got a little nervous when I relaized that the Linux client was Java based, but I'm over the "shock" watching the World Cup without any problems. I use VPN a lot on Android as well and see that there's no dedicated AirVPN client. I have found documentation for setting up the OpenVPN clients for Android to use AirVPN. I have tried the OpenVPN Connect client and it seems to work good. However, I was wondering if there's some consensus around here which OpenVPN client works best with AirVPN on Android, or if they all do the same thing with a some UI and feature differences?

GUI is close to nonexistent. At least the logic is there and it does what it's supposed to do: Connecting to a server.

 

Apart from that, OpenVPN for Android by Arne Schwabe is my go-to client, one I frequently recommend.

Is it possible to route all Hotspot clients of an Android device through AirVPN with Eddie or Schwalbes Openvpn ?

Since both use the VpnService API of Android, no. Of course, anything is possible if you're root...
